This dramatic debut is based on the director's personal experience. It all takes place over the course of 24 hours, the passage of which, from the beginning of the film, is fundamentally affected by a traumatic event – a sudden suicide attempt. An unexpected feat of mentally unstable Damir opens a gap in the everyday life of a family of three. Their lives change fundamentally as if they’ve been pulled into a war invisible to everyone else. The plot is limited to the most acute, a short period of time, and a situation that boils down to the most important thing – to save a loved one. The director also plays the leading role.

The film had its world premiere at the 75th Locarno IFF in the Filmmakers of the Present section, where it won the Best Debut Award, Goran Marković the Best Actor Award, and Juraj Lerotić the Best Emerging Director Award. IMDb web trailer
